Monday – August 12th: Little Bay on Antipoison Creek

A cool little anchorage behind a sand spit. Cool because there is a great breeze that comes in off the bay.

But, where did the strange name, “Antipoison”, come from? Well, when John Smith made his famous voyages of discovery around the Chesapeake Bay back in 1608-09, he was stung by a stingray while fishing off of, of course, Stingray Point. John thought sure he was going to die, but was saved by some Native Americans who brought an antivenin from what is now called “Antipoison Creek”.
